This hymn is used for Lauds on the Feast of St. Elizabeth of Portugal in the Extraordinary Form.
Riches and regal throne, for Christ’s dear sake,
Blest Saint, thou didst despise;
Amid the Angels seated now in bliss,
Oh, help us from the skies!
Guide us; and fill our days with perfume sweet
Of loving word and deed;
So teaches us thy tender charity
By fragrant roses hid.
O charity! what pow’r is thine! by thee
Above the stars we soar;
Praise to the Father, Son, and Spirit be,
Henceforth for evermore.
Words: Pope Urban VIII, 1632.; tr. Fr. Edward Caswall, C.O., 1849.
